There comes a time in every woman’s life where we gotta do what our male counterparts do – say f*ck it and throw on a hat.
Today was one of those days for me. I got up quite early this morning and showered, got my glam on, all that jazz. But I just couldn’t finish working the task [or maybe the task wouldn’t work with me] so I threw on a hat.
I feel like as long as you dont wear one to a job interview, wedding, or even a funeral, you’re pretty safe to wear it wherever and whenever you want. Just make sure to keep a smile on your face like its just part of your outfit & not a bad hair day!

While I am awake, I am sitting in my bed thinking about success. How can I achieve success to my own terms and what are the different ways I can promote myself and my craft enough to make it a career? The thing is I have been thinking about this concept all night. I feel like sometimes I eat, breathe and LIVE the need to feel like I am a successful woman. I research ways to market myself and what I do but what I have found to be my biggest issue is that I want too much out of life. I am the type of person who has a hard time limiting myself to just one idea. I want to have my part in so many different things that I find myself having a hard time focusing on just one thing.
All the time I read that one has to find out what they are good at and make sure it is something they enjoy doing enough to do it for the rest of their lives. While that sounds ideal, what about those of us who are good at multiple things and enjoy doing them all – what do we do? What about those of us who want to be a part of EVERYTHING? How do we limit ourselves? I find myself asking this question more often than not. I get so attached to the different ways a person can branch out and achieve the finer things in life. I’m one of those individuals who gets inspired by almost everything I am exposed to. I can come up with a new project just by being inspired by a character in a movie. That is how insane I am.
How does one limit themselves enough to find the ability to focus on one thing without limiting themselves too much? How do you discover THAT path in life when you want to walk down every path that may be available? This is something I have yet to figure out about myself.

Lately I haven’t been in the best of moods. Life isn’t exactly as I want it to be and I know I am young but I have expectations of myself that are pretty high. The fact that I don’t have everything I want out of life at 23 years old disappoints me even though everyone around me tells me that I am at the right place in my life right now and I actually have a lot accomplished at my age. While I know this, I still feel like I should be a lot further especially after all of the hard work I put into my goals. We shall see what happens.
Summer quarter is ending this week and I am looking forward to the break. I won’t be starting school again until the end of September. Working on my Bachelor’s Degree is something I am proud to be accomplishing because I come from a family where no one has a college degree let alone a High School Diploma. I already feel like I have accomplished so much by having two Associates Degrees.
Despite how hard I am on myself to accomplish great things in life, I do understand that life is about the journey to the end result, not the end result itself. This idea is what inspired me for my “21 Days to Go” Project for Evve Online which will probably be rolled out by the end of this week. Stay tuned!

Ladies, let me just say that the Limited Edition Haagen Dazs Flavor called Bananas Foster really is heaven in a container. I mean this stuff is SO good, I cant even tell you how good it is – you just gotta try it yourself. The Haagen Dazs website says that their Bananas Foster ice cream is blended with roasted banana ice cream, brown sugar, rum, cinnamon and nutmeg. It is extremely yummy, then again you have to try it for yourself in order to really understand what I am talking about.
My point is, INDULGE. Every diva is allowed to! There are occasions when a woman has the right to indulge in things that may not be the healthiest or the wisest decisions but who cares! I remember a time when I was having a not so great day and I indulged in ice cream because it was just THAT good. I let go of my fears of gaining a single pound because at that moment I just needed a lift me up. Seriously, if you are having a bad day and ice cream does you wonders to lifting your spirits I encourage you to try the Bananas Foster flavor before this Limited Edition ice cream runs out.
In fact, those of you who have tried it, what do you think? Should we petition to Haagen Dazs to never get rid of it? I think we should!
